Liquid Farm 2018 Chardonnay WH
2018 Liquid Farm Chardonnay White Hill Vineyard Santa Rita Hills
San Francisco Wine Panel Score: 94 Points
NVWE Notes: Forthcoming and sharply focused, the aromas of this distinctive and immediately enticing Chardonnay are a vibrant mix of fresh Fuji apple, baked apple, key lime, papaya and white pepper, in contrast to flinty, Chablis-like minerality. If piquantly fresh on the palate it also proves tongue-coating and extremely long. The mid-palate and finishing flavors achieve a cutting-dry balance as the intense push of crunchy apple, lime and white pepper contrast sharper sea shell-like notes. This one is will prove ideal for service with sashimi or other flashy salt water entrees. 1000 cases made.
The 2018 Chardonnay White Hill is bright and beautifully focused. Lemon oil, white flowers and tropical accents give this mid-weight, layered Chardonnay tons of character. Chamomile, apricot, sage, crushed rocks and mint develop later, adding striking dimensions of complexity. The 2018 is a blend from Clos Pepe, Kessler-Haak and La Rinconada, sites that are so complementary. Drink 2020 - 2026. Antonio Galloni Aug 2020
